One of Galway’s most distinctive and best preserved houses from a bygone era is currently on the market. Windfield House is located just 30 miles from Galway city and only three miles from the village of Mountbellew. This period property extends to around 2,150sq ft and has been lovingly restored by the current owners.
Today the house stands impressively in its own grounds of almost 10 acres, and retains many of its original features. Cornice work on the ceilings and a number of original fireplaces help it retain its grandeur. The house would be a grand family home, with the possibility of separate units for home and income purposes.
A large private garden makes this an intriguing opportunity for anyone looking for a property with exciting potential.
Airports are within easy reach and Dublin is approximately 100 miles to the east. Windfield House is set back off the main road and approached via stone pillars with electrically operated wrought iron gates.
Outside, the house sits towards the middle of the grounds and is surrounded by landscaped mature gardens with its own private grazing land beyond, bordered on one side by the River Shiven. Within the grounds is an old mill house with planning potential, a stone stable building containing two stables, a 40m x 20m sand manege and paddocks - ideal for the equestrian fanatic.
Flanked by stone pillars, the electric cast iron gates give access to a lovely winding driveway, tree lined near the house with gravelled forecourt and lush gardens.
The property has landscaped gardens with a multitude of maturing shrubs, trees, and flowerbeds throughout. Windfield House is listed on the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage as a property of architectural and artistic merit.
